Title: Scheduling Posts and Announcements in Teams
Description: This Flow will allow for educators to schedule announcements and posts in Microsoft Teams
I'm a teacher using teams and I would like to be able to schedule posts to my teams, but not on a recurring basis. Just one time posts. Is there a way to do that with the power automate tool? Because it would be very helpful for me to create a post, then have it appear in my students' feed at a particular time. I don't want to have to schedule my day to remember to post at the appropriate time, which is what I do now.
Thanks for your help!

Hi @meganbenn ,
you are absolutely right. There should be a tool to schedule posts so that you don't annoy team mates on weekends or on holidays. By the time MS Viva is taking control of these kind of thoughts in Outlook right now and I think it is a good initiative. In times of home office, we need to respect office hours very strictly (ALL of us: employees AND superiors)
That's why I actually ended up creating an app that can schedule Teams posts/chats directly from a Microsoft Outlook calendar, which comes with full scheduling flexibility the calendar offers. Furthermore, you can write rich Teams post (including images!) directly into the calendar event, which will be passed over as the contents of the post.
The app: https://www.powertags.com
I made a reddit post about it which contains more detailed info and a demo video:
